Karrine ‘Superhead’ Steffans decided to share her “success story” with her followers on Twitter over the weekend. “At 26, I was already a New York Times bestselling author, a millionaire, and sitting next to Oprah. Be inspired. You can do it,” she tweeted. Her tweet was greeted with a ton of backlash, dozens followers reminding ‘Superhead’ where she came from. Steffans clapped back at fans using Oprah as an example and comparing what she saw as a similar path. She tweeted, “.@Oprah was a hoe. She was promiscuous after her rape, admittedly. Same story. More money doesn’t erase truth.” Thoughts? Click the gallery for all the tweets!
Tyga, always seems to find himself at the center of the roast session on Twitter. This time, the YMCMB rapper brought the slander upon himself when he tweeted a photo of himself side-by-side with the legendary rapper Tupac and captioned it “Dad.” Tyga went on to tell his followers a story about his real father, who’s currently serving a life sentence in prison and explained how Tupac served as his inspiration and motivation because his father was not around. “Pac taught me a lot more than my own father. Inspired me, Motivated Me, Listened without ever being there,” he tweeted. The story was actually really heart-warming and reflective, however the trolls of the Internet would not let Tyga live. They completely disregarded the story and relentlessly roasted him for the side-by-side photo him and Tupac wearing the same Duke basketball jersey. Click the gallery for all the tweets.

So we’re not the only ones who think Kanye West’s twitter feed is a gold mine of absurd outbursts and hilariousness. During the Vanity Fair Oscar’s party, host and Youtube star Tyler Oakley collected Kanye’s greatest tweets and had A-listers do their best Kanye West impression. Stars like Whoopi Goldberg, Patrick Stewart, Kate Hudson, Michael Strahan and even Monica Lewinsky gave it their best shot reading quotes like “You may be talented, but you’re not Kanye West” and “I’m not even gonna lie to you, I love me so much right now.” It’s hilarious.Check it out below.
All hell has been breaking loose these past few days with the Joey Bada$$ and Troy Ave feud, that was initially ignited when Troy Ave said Joey’s late friend who committed suicide was burning in hell. Many said Troy Ave took it too far, but now Joey takes it back even further as he pulls up some old tweets of Troy dissing one of the greatest to ever grace the booth, Nas. Hit the jump.
Didn’t I say the clap back would be coming soon? Kanye West was recently called out by Deadmau5 for using the popular piracy website, The Pirate Bay, for possibly downloading the software, Serum. Deadmau5, who has never been one to hold back his Twitter fingers, called Ye’ a “dick” and suggested fans start a kick-starter for him to purchase the $200 software. Well, Kanye clearly just hopped on Twitter and saw all the nonsensery in his mentions and proceeded to drag Deadmau5. In a quick and hilarious rant of “serious questions” Kanye West tweeted, “… is this person’s name pronounce dead-mow-five?” Ye kept it up going in on the electronic producer’s head gear adding, “Who’s job is it to carry the head on the plane # hash tag # do you check the mickey mouse head or carry on # does it get hot?” Of course in true Kanye fashion it didn’t end there, he proceeded to ask Deadmau5 if he would show up to a birthday party for his daughter North, in a Minnie Mouse head. LOL! Click the gallery for more tweets.
Although he wasn’t going off on a rant this time, Kanye West’s Twitter has gotten him in some trouble again. After posting a screenshot showing fans what he was listening to on YouTube – Sufjan Steves’ “Death With Dignity” – Kanye was called out by fans as well as fellow artist, deadmau5, for some open browser tabs that included, popular piracy website The Pirate Bay.
In between working on his own forthcoming project and Twitter ranting, Kanye West found the time to hit the studio with 2 Chainz and Lil Wayne. Chainz and Weezy have been working on their joint album ‘Collegrove‘ for quiet some time and now thanks to Mr. West we know the project is almost finished and we can expect it to drop later this week. According Kanye, the project will drop this Friday March 4th and to accompany the release date, Ye shared the official cover art. Like the title, ‘Collegrove’ which is a combo of the two rapper’s hometowns, the cover art is a combo of the two rapper’s face – 2 Chainz face with Lil Wayne’s tattoos. So far, we haven’t gotten any official releases for songs off the album, but the duo did debut the track “Rolls Royce Weather Everyday” during a live performance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon last month.
